Between the hot flashes, weight gain, and night sweats, menopause can be a challenging time. (Not to mention the wild hormonal swings in the years preceding menopause, known as perimenopause, can bring its own obstacles.) Understanding exactly what’s going on with your body is important. But finding camaraderie and humor with women who’ve been through it can make all the difference.
